The World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Europe says there is a risk of further spread of monkeypox at upcoming festivals and large parties. “The potential for further transmission in Europe and elsewhere during the summer is high,” said Hans Henri Kluge, WHO regional director for Europe.

But festivals and celebrations in the coming months offer an opportunity to raise awareness of the disease and strengthen protective behaviors among young, sexually active, and mobile people.

According to Kluge, investigations into the cases suggest that the outbreak was already underway in the region by mid-April. He said it is the largest and most geographically widespread monkeypox outbreak ever reported outside endemic areas in West and Central Africa.

He said rapidly lifting CoV measures that had restricted travel and significant events. Increased transmission had occurred. Even though many cases have been linked to sexual activity, he said, it should not be forgotten that the virus can affect anyone.
